How to export a part from an assembly


I have an STEP file that imports well in DSM 5.

It is a complex assembly. I need to modify one of the parts, so I would like to pick it and paste on an empty document to work with.

On the other hand, DSM tells me the assembly document is "locked", and I've been unable to find information on how to unlock it. Could you please point me to any tutorial regarding this?.

Thanks in advance,

I'm afraid you cannot unlock the file without buying the add-on'
However you can use the geometry of the file to 'draw over' each part.
To select one part of the assembly. Expand the Component in the structure tree and find the part you want, turn off all of the other components. Copy and paste the selected part as 'Independent'
